up on the bridge is asked to call san francisco animal care and control. if nobody claims this little dog, after seven days, he or she will be going up for adoption. >> his time, 1 hour, 19 minutes. he did very well. meteorologist rob mayeda is here with the microclimate forecast. i know for the folks crossing the golden gate, it looked a little foggy and cold. >> it was a little chilly. we'll see a repeat performance very likely for tomorrow morning. right now seeing some patchy low clouds. 55 degrees over in oakland. we're seeing 57, some areas of low clouds there. too. but pretty clear view from looking down from belvedere to san francisco. 54 degrees. and across the golden gate bridge, may see some low clouds for the morning drive right now. 56. and the winds still onshore, which will bring in the patchy low cloud cover. into the tri-valley. and into the santa clara valley for the morning with temperatures that will be mostly in the 40s to 50s. so you see that. hour-by-hour into the afternoon, mostly sunny skies. and just a bit of a warming trend tomorrow.

a few minutes ago, the last time we got into the low 90s, or los gatos was back the middle part of last october. but look at this temperature drop off as we get into thursday and friday. so we've got heat to the middle part of the week. and then we're going see some big areas as an area of low pressure approaches southern california. that's going to bring some cooling and the increasing chance of seeing some rain. so we got the no rain other than the misty skies. maybe low clouds for tomorrow morning. then as we head towards friday and next weekend, you're starting to see measurable rainfall. and you can see there from friday into next sunday, now we're talking about chances of seeing some rain. and especially across the north bay, we could see some pretty good rain totals by april standards. a little less maybe further south. so the time frame for the rain will be coming up. increasing chances around friday. and very likely the chances will take us through next weekend. so we had a dry forecast for this weekend. notice for next weekend, numbers in the mid-60s. and this weather system and pattern setting up, a few
systems that could come on through. but the air cold enough for more sierra snow. of course we had the big sierra snow survey last week. there is a possibility would could see one to two feet of snow in the sierra if the pattern pans out as we go through the nt seven to 14 days. great news. if you like summer, the middle part of the week is for you. if you like more spring-like and the chance of expanding the ski season, next weekend and beyond looking pretty good. got everything covered. >> mixed bag. i love it. >> just stay where you are. coming to you. thanks a lot. coming up next, a former 49er player in trouble with the law. and microphones pick up what he had to say to his arresting officer. plus, a new art gallery that is a little hard to get. to but it's well worth a swim. we'll take you there.

an end to big benefits. a controversial green technology that has received hundreds of millions of your dollars is now the focus of cutbacks that have been recommended to state regulators. >> senior investigative reporter vicky nguyen has been reporting on this issue for the past year and a half. she has details of the new proposal. >> guys, we're talking about electric fuel cells. they're like big batteries that produce power.
as part of an incentive program to make california's power greener and more reliable, the state collects money from your pg&e bill to help fund the technology. no company has benefitted more than sunnyvale based bloom energy. but that public cash pipeline could be drying up. fuel cells like these made by bloom technology typically run on natural gas to produce energy. touted as a cleaner alternative to the traditional power grid, bloom technology has benefitted from $400 million in incentives. but in a report published late last year, staff at the public utilities commission found electric fuel cells that run on natural gas pollute too much and are not worth further investment. >> but are bloom boxes performing? >> reporter: the message reinforces which critics pointed out on our air last year. the public should not be subsidizing technologies that pollute. >> we should not have our public institutions using our money to prop up polluting technologies.
>> i except more from the puc. >> reporter: since 2001, the self-generation program has provided more than a billion dollars in incentives to so-called green technology. for years, starting in 2007, bloom energy received the lion's share of rate payer subsidies. but after state lawmakers ordered a review of the program, puc staff looked at the benefit from the technologies. they are now recommending that fund nothing longer be provided for natural gas electric fuel cells. >> i'm really pleased that the staff at the public utilities commission commission took a close look at the evidence. >> reporter: mars is for turn. the group has long questioned the environmental benefits of a natural gas fuel cell. >> turn's strongly supports of eliminating fuel cells that use natural gas and funding only clean distributed distribution. >> reporter: the utilities that benefit are suppose to cut carbon technicians but fuel cell technology failed to meet the
greenhouse requirement that the cpuc approved last fall and concluded they failed by a small margin to be clean they're tonight grid. >> so it's not a surprise to me that fuel cells do not look good in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. >> reporter: the investigative unit first exposed in 2014 that bloom boxes were not much cleaner than california's grid, which already uses renewable power sources like wind and water. we found bloom technology was producing more carbon emissions than advertised, something one critic calls green washing. >> i love the word bloom dogle. >> reporter: the company declined an request to discuss the proposal, but in comments the company wrote bloom energy meets all program goals and says its emissions are lower than grid emissions. the company continues to compare bloom's prior products to future goals is speculative and fundamentally flawed because it doesn't include the performance of bloom's latest technology,
which the company claims has improved. >> these types of incentive programs are the foundation for the future. >> reporter: janice lynn is the found other telephone california storage alliance. her company represents clients that get more funds. she supports a proposal that recommendation would make more money available for new technologies that make california greener. >> we live here and we have children that are going to grow up here. we want california to be as clean and affordable and livable as possible. >> reporter: in addition to the electric fuel cells, the staff also recommends cutting to natural gas powered microturbines. but in the meantime half of this year's funds have already been given to companies that qualified under the old rules. the commission has not said when it will decide whether to adopt the new rules. guys? >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call at 888-99 of-tips or send us an e-mail to theunit@nbc bay

water. so that's a plus. >> reporter: and the dog likes it better too? >> oh, yeah, definitely. he loved it. >> those are lucky dogs. a lot of people will be looking for a lake or some way to cool off so great to see. >> such good news. meteorologist rob mayeda is here with the microclimate forecast. we've got some temps coming up. >> we're going see folks running to head out to the water as we head towards wednesday and our temperatures climb. great to see the pictures around folsom lake and lake shasta and/or rowville reservoirs looking good. right now you can see the sunol time laps for the day. low clouds, high clouds around sunset. we should see a repeat performance for tomorrow morning. with patches of low clouds. maybe some misty skies around the peninsula. and for san francisco for the morning. and our temperatures going from the 50s around day break to mid- to upper 60s around lunchtime with clearing skies. and eventually, mid-70s in reach for tomorrow around morgan hill and the tri-valley. san jose 71, but could be as much as 20 degrees warmer by wednesday. so highs tomorrow around the
south bay mid-70s. san francisco low to mid-60s. as you head to the east bay tomorrow, numbers in the mid-70s around moraga. tri-valley mid- to upper 70s. and speaking of oakland, we have the a's taking on the white sox 7:05 tomorrow. light jacket should be fine. but the games to come for tuesday into wednesday, it's going to be trending warmer as the strong sea breeze is about to be replaced by winds turning offshore. a sign that high pressure is going to build in. and it's really going to boost temperatures by as much as 20 degrees of warming. by the time we get into wednesday. so as things look right now, to use the example of san jose you, are to go back to about october 13th to see a pattern possibly this warm. now notice san francisco, the spike here on our temperature graph on wednesday. mid-80s in reach. the average is only 62. oakland also climbing up into the upper 80s. and san jose following a similar trend as we head towards the middle part of the week. the average high should be about 62 to 68.
instead, 85 to about 92 there. but then you see how the numbers really drop off thursday and friday. so the summer-like heat not sticking around for very long. by thursday and friday we get this cold area of low pressure. that's going to bring up moisture out of the south. and that will bring our temperatures down, and also increase the chance of maybe seeing a little more sierra snow by next weekend. so friday you begin to see the chance of showers. and by next saturday and sunday, highs in the mid-60s with a chance not only of the showers lasting from friday into sunday, but possibly through the first half of the following week. so rainfall projections right now. as we go into next weekend, looks like the north bay may pick up close to an inch of rain. and the air will be cold enough for this to hit the sierra and maybe stop some of the midweek snow melt and maybe add another foot or two of fresh powder to the elevations above 6,000 feet by next weekend. so summer to winter maybe in the span of about three to five days from the middle part of the week into next weekend. back to you. that. >> is fabulous. >> rob, thanks a lot.
coming up, baseball is back. the giants will kick off the season tomorrow in million. we'll have a preview of the opening day matchup. >> looking forward to that. plus, the hottest team in any sport currently in action as they continue their quest for immortality. highlights are ahead in sports. otfaon ith0
hey, guy, fallon smith in the csn studios. the dubs have lost back-to-back all season long. maybe seeing their winning streak get shattered was good thing for the warriors because tonight they were locked in as the chase for history continues. warriors hosting the blazers. we pick it gallup the second quarter. klay thompson, baseline. gets the bucket and the foul. he finished with 21 points. later in the quarter, steph curry, oh, yeah. money from downtown. that was the dubs' 1,000
three-pointer. no other team has ever hit one thousand threes in a single season. how hot was steph? after the game, draymond green getting ready to dump waterton mvp, but steph knocks the water out of dray hand with a no look towel toss. the dubs win, 136-111. >> a big opportunity for us to bounce back after the tough loss at home. the first time we saw defeat at home. and i think we answered that challenge pretty well. our goal for the year obviously we don't want to lose anymore. but not having two losses in a row is something that we would like to accomplish as we go through the season. this is a big step for us. >> woo-hoo. baseball is back. we're less than 12 hours away from the giants season opener in milwaukee. and for the third straight year, madison bumgarner will start the
season on the hill. now on the other side, willie peralta gets the nod for the brewers. with more here is our insider alex pavlovic. >> this spring was all about slow playing for bruce bochy as he sat one veteran after the next, making sure guys were healthy for opening day. it's coming around now, and bochy's team is healthy. not putting anybody on the disabled list has his full rotation and the bench they wanted. the giants want to get off to a quick start, not because they're healthy, but because the rest of the teams in the division are. no. the dodgers had injuries all spring and the dodge lost a.j. pollock. despite they know they have a tough schedule, they're healthy, they're ready to go, and they feel like the a chance to get off to a good start. >> thanks, alex. giants fans, csn bay area is your ticket for exclusive opening day coverage from milwaukee. we'll have a one-hour pregame show starting at 10:00 in the
morning, featuring amy g. and pavlovich. first pitch just after 11:00 a.m. baseball opening day. royals raises the banner and hosting the mets. that's a sight to see. bottom six, alex gordon drops one just out of the reach of juan le gara. just like that kc up 3-0. top nine, one-run ball game. runners on the corners for yoenis cespedes. oh, he gone. wade davis gets him swinging. royals hold on the win, 4-3. all right. if you're an a's fan, csn california is the place to be tomorrow night for exclusive opening day coverage from the coliseum. we'll have a one-hour pregame show starting at 6:00. followed by first pitch just after 7:00. all right. that's it for sports. more news after the break. a sringcenforomehoey ns.anscatoi
